    Latest finish in mission to use scraps

    My latest scrappy, finished the binding today. It is made with 2 1/2 in strips. Called Merry Go Round from American Patchwork and quilting Feb. 2012. I just quilted with simple straight lines and used fleece for the backing and no batting. It is soft and cozy. The second one is from a previous post, paper pieced friendship stars, finally quilted and bound.

    They are both gorgeous quilts. The second one looks like it was a lot of work.

    Oh I like them both. The light backgrounds really unify both of the quilts so they don't look so haphazard but flow nicely.
    Don't worry spider.
